Can some one help me regarding a laptop that is ideapad 100s11iby who does not have any boot options. I formated all the partitions in wanting to skip bitlocker password to install a windows for a"friend " so now since I start the laptop no more recovery tools or any troubleshooting setting work anymore . I can enter BIOS but that is only information you cannot change any details . can somebody point me to a firmware or dos bootable something . need options ! Thank you

Well, of course not, your formatted them.
And if you don't know where to get a copy of windows, maybe just give it to someone that knows what they're doing.

You formatted. A pro can save the data. Otherwise you need to get an OS and start from scratch.

The problem is this dumb ideapad is embeed storage no hard disk. I cannot try plop boot manager cause there is no floppy or DVD CD tray either . it is like a cheap plastic with no laptop parts in . I would like to know if using the SD card tray to put some firmware or access some live program somehow

It has a usb port right? You can install an OS from a usb drive.

Thank for the help . it doesn't boot any kind of USB . its freedos installed . I cannot figure it out. But no os can be installed because if I press f2 or f12 it ignores the boot option . let me explain how I tried to bypass the bitlocker info so nobody does this to their device . went in troubleshoot system recovery add driver and when I was browsing through . I could format the partition c d and also x . and I think X is with the instruction for the Precon figuration of the system recovery tool . unless I find a way to replace the dos data . it only gives me error at normal startup ,system recovery . boot option it says a programming is missing error 0x0000f0000 something like that . its frustrating because I know what I'm doing . the problem is its like a mobile phone circuit board inside this friends laptop .. Well thanks for opinions I think its like condoms one use only ;))

I plugged it in the broken one and fixed everything . booting options preinstalled configurations to dos . and windows . now it is like brand new . thank you everyone for your support
